    Exactly. I am sick of the race card. It's like "we don't like <insert that here>, you hate black people! We're suing!". I understand that alleged racism is a key to their agenda, but use it for some practical. I am not happy about Nanny Bloomberg but we need to find ways to solve the obesity problem.

    @RobertJHarsh I agree! One way to solve the obesity problem is not allowing junk food to be bought with foodstamps. The NAACP would likely scream 'racist' if folks were told which food could be bought with the foodstamps you and I pay for. A bag of dried beans and a sack of potatoes would be a good replacement for a bag of chips and a 2-liter.

    What the hell is this? So... Stupid. Why even r write about this? I'm black, in the south and 5'2 and weight 125. So, I'm not fat. I don't give a care. Stop eating so damn much. Get your behind outside and run. They need to shut the front door, on this topic.

    If 40 ounce bottles of malt liquor would be banned then yes, it would definitely be racist. Soda on the other hand, well, not so much.

    @Cheenoguy I hate to say it but Jimmy is right for once. I had stores in the "urban areas" and I never saw a single person with a "forty" except for black guys. It's the cheap drink of choice along with "Old English" among wanna be black thugs. Of course those with money drink Hennessy.

    Obesity isn't race-specific, and neither is heart disease or diabetes. I note there was no equivalent protest when taxes on cigarettes raised the prices and cut demand.

    @MongoAPillager You are wrong on this. I know of people that quit smoking, and lots of kids don't bother to start because the price is too high compared to other things they want to do with the money. Also a percentage of smokers have taken to rolling there own, which may not be good for their health, but reduces impulse smoking, thus cutting the number of cigerattes consumed, and deprives big cigeratte companies of revenue...

    @PoliticalSpice Wrong,Sir how dare you!Wrong indeed!I still know the same crowd I went to school with,most were smokers then as are they now,I live right on the border of Maine and the state loses so much tax money to us they actually spy on our liquer stores to get the tax evaders when they cross back over,we have whole caravans on the weekend come up for the smoke runs,flatlanders,new Yorkers etc,,,nope,PC laws do not stop smoking,just messes up their latter's a little

    @MongoAPillager I dare again. High cigerrate prices prevent a lot of kids from starting in the first place, and I know people who quit and two people who roll their own cause of high prices. These rules may not apply so much in rural areas where ther is less to do, but in urban areas people would rather spend the money going out.

    It will hurt the small businesses who make large profits selling garbage. Maybe they could adapt and start selling something useful.
    Hell, buy a Vitamix and fruit so you can start selling smoothies.

    When will this racecard crap ever stop. Hell the only race that should be able to use the race card today are white,white, and whites.

    HUH?? How can the city ban Big Gulps? Exactly what is that going to accomplish? Other than folks are going to have to buy more sodas....ahh, I get it!! I was once upon a time considered obese, when my family tried to hinder my access to sodas, junk food, and sweets, I just made other arrangements. The chunky, hefty, or overweight...pick your term, will not change their habits until THEY, themselves, are ready.

    I just want to say that I am a cynical, government hating minority and I still never trusted the NAACP for reasons like this. Political agenda will kill any true chance at socio0economic reform.

    I love how these people recognize infringement of individual liberties and affronts to business sovereignty when it comes to big gulps but are clueless when it comes to their second amendment.

    NYC's ban on big size soda's is infringement on individual liberties, racist no. Remember the food police will come to get you for enjoying a big 16oz coca cola.
